Ever been to anywhere in Malaysia and experienced paranormal hauntings? Curious to know where are the places that you can visit to experience one yourself? The below are lists of Malaysia’s top haunted places that you can, may or even experience ghosts.

  1. Georgetown, Penang – A T-junction better known as The Deadly Junction is located beside the Union High School. It is said that if you ever drive through this lonely road late at night, your care will go out of control and crash due to the too many accidents that happened there. It is also said that there is a tiny unknown tree beside the road which looks like a lady carrying a child. The story was known by some old folks saying that this lady was once a bomoh (witch doctor) who kidnapped her sister’s son. Somehow, they never again appeared anywhere except other than being seen beside this road
  2. St Michael’s Institution, Ipoh – A group of Catholics missionaries arrived here in 1912 and began building a school next to the famous Kinta River. It did not take long for the missionary brothers who ran the school to have enough funds to erect a huge school building with unique French structural design. When the WW2 broke out, the school was used bu Japanese secret police as their headquarters. Needless to say, there were lots of torturing carried out. The buidling itself had many tunnels which had been sealed off and the tunnels were said to be used by the Japanese to torture prisoners and to store food. Most of the sightings occurs in the Chapel on the fourth floor of the bluiding where a Brother was seen dressed in a black robe holding praying beands in a sitting position facing towards the door (which leads to the brothers quarters) in the very early morning without a head. Those who had witnessed it were asked to keep it a secret
  3. Malay College Kuala Kangsar, Kuala Kangsar, Perak – This school is said to be a former site of Japanese occupation camp during WW2. Students would sometimes be awakened by something that stares down directly at them. A marching platoon can be heard in the field and sounds of dragging chains can be heard through the campus corridors. A tree on the campus, which is located right beside a lampost where the light shines down on it, reflects a shadow of a man hanging from the tree! A few other old colonial admin buildings that were used by the Japanese during the Occupation in the 1940s where executions are taken place are buildings like Victoria Institution and Bukit Bintang Girls School
  4. MARA Junior Science College, Kuala Kubu Bharu, Selangor – A white flying apparition can be seen in various parts of the building
  5. Victoria Institution, Kuala Lumpur – A boys school was tured into a Japanese base during the Occupation. Many British soldiers and locals were brutally tortured to death in the basement and some older buildings on the campus. It is said that not only are apparitions common in the day as well as in the night, there had also been many cases of spirits possessing students. The possessed boys would behave strangely and even violently harming other students and teachers, forcing the stronger teachers and students to restrain him. The possesed boy would only snap out of it a few hours later and remembering nothing
  6. Tambun, Ipoh, Perak – Singtings of an old lady on the roadside while driving
  7. Tambun Inn, Ipoh, Perak – Lights were reported to turn on and off by itself and sounds of whispering could be heard where no one was around
  8. Bukit Tunku, Kuala Lumpur – A spooky place to be even when it is actually one of the most elite residential areas in Kuala Lumpur. This place with its many big and tall trees and very winding roads, has an eerie feeling about it even at broad daylight. It is said that a few years ago two youth embarked on a high speed motorcycle chase around the curvy roads of the area. One of the youth crashed at a dark stretch of the road, which is actually a very sharp corner. There have been claims about sightings of a young man riding a motorcycle at high speed, who mysteriously vanished in the dark
  9. Poliklinik Cheras, Kuala Lumpur – Used to be a government hospital but it is being abandoned with no reason. There were rumors that say there are still some dead patients that loiters around the area
  10. Genting Highlands Resort, Pahang – A famous hill top resort and casino, many people incurred gambling debts and committed suicide there. Some visitors leaving the hotel lobby reported seeing a man in red jump from the rooftop, just to disappear before he hits the ground. Certain rooms are not available for rent no matter how full the hotel was. Those who have seen the inside reported that it was filled with old Chinese ghost wards. They would subsequently fall sick for days afterwards
  11. Highland Towers, Kuala Lumpur – A tragic event where one of the 3 blocks of apartment at this place fell apart due to landslide and heavy downpour prior to that fateful day. Since then, the Highland Towers have become famous for claims of being a very haunted place. Voices of the dead can be heard at night and ghostly figures are said to have appeared at the scene. There are also a story about a taxi driver who picked up a woman passenger at the middle of the night and being asked to drop her at the place.She left a bag and the poor taxi driver found it to be full of blood!
  12. Police Station in Tras, Pahang – During the 1950’s, a police corporal and his wife were found in a state of shock and terror after opening their door to an unknown figure. Many police personnel were terrorized by this entity that other policemen would rather resign than being transferred to this remote station
  13. Kellies Castle, Perak -Sometimes door are opened themselves and lots of scary screaming voices can be heard.
  14. Puchong House, Kuala Lumpur – Evil drawings on the walls. Some say the ghost of a woman who used to stay there haunts the place. Other than that, just stepping into the house is enough to keep you awake for months.
  15. S.K (1) Kuala Ampang, Selangor – Could hear taps in the toilet running by itself and sightings of a lady in white walking behind the school compound.

    Chinese usually will avoid buying house near the TNB/power supply house especially corner lot with dead road. It is said this area will have a lot of ghost loitering around at night. During daytime they will hide in the power supply house.

    I was 12 when i encounter with a mysterious thing for the 1st time in life i was new to smk taman hi- tech. 1st itself when i entered the school building i could sense some coldness but it was so hot out there. few days later, i joined night class conducted by school for UPSR students. the next day as usual i was waiting outside the classroom for the teacher with my friends. suddenly i n my another fren saw an orange flame moving on opposite block.1st we thought it was the guard but the guard was actually walking near us. we still thought it was the guard but when we looked at that block the flame was still moving til it reach a staircase connecting that block n our block. when the light disappear we could saw a black figure sat the staircase. a week later my another said that she saw white cloth- like figure swinging on top of roof. since then i wouldnt go the school at night time. my house is opposite of the school sometimes i would dare myself n look at the school with a binoculars but something would stop me 4m doing so. years passed n last year i was walking with my mom to stall nearby to buy some foods as i turned at the school i saw that orange flame again. immediately i asked my mom to look at that, she was shocked to see a light without any one holding it and there was no electricity at the time to light it up. we quickly bought the food and returned home to avoid any trouble. not only me many others including teacher, students n the guard had saw the mysterious light but till now no one could explain what it was.

    Spooky hello to all,

    Well, if u r looking for haunted place….Moonlight Bungalow, Cameron Highland, Pahang. Heard d owner was a white man and his body was cremated at d wall of d bungalow!!! No one is allowed there.

    Another place is at SMK Clifford, Kuala Lipis Pahang, rumours float that there r 3 tunnels fr d skul towards d Old Residence House, Resident Office and Gold Mine. Ter was a ‘batu pancung kepala’ n now demolished n ‘bilik gantung’ as well (Japanese Occ).

    Melaka Hospital is quite eerie as well, had been there to visit my fren in 2007.

    UPM……some of d residence college management will never vacate selected block(s) or room(s) even during semester break. It will b rented out so that ‘dat thing’ won’t b able to get in. There are many ‘impostors’ roping in any students to follow ‘it’. I stil remember my fren was badly terrified as she followed ‘me’ towards an abandoned floor(3rd floor) one night n while she was following ‘me’ at the staircase, fortunately a fren ran towards her and asked why is she going upstairs alone. My fren pointed at me n ‘I’ vanished in flick of time….(since dat day onwards she will check my legs b4 talk to me… kikiki)…..

    Me and my daughter recently encountered and experienced an incident in one of the hotel in Penang . Upon check in , my 2 years old daughter was fine and active although it was a bit late around 11.30 pm . After she took bath and prepare for bed suddenly she got so scared and started to cry and at the same time both her eyes were staring at the left corner side of the shilling. So I placed her sleeping next to me . Middle of the night around 3:30am , suddenly I felt someone touching my toe and when I opened my eyes , there was nobody . After came back to Ipoh , my daughter started high fever and no medicine can cure her . I have no choice and took her to a temple near tambun . The Chinese shifu prayed on my daughter and told us actually there were two male hanged themselves in the hotel room we stayed in and the face of one of the old ghost was very scary and he was trying to freak my daughter out . Thank god my daughter are all well now after the praying ceremony .

  10. CreepedOut Says:

    BSB – which hotel is this? Heard that children can see these ‘beings’. So it’s worrying to know.

  11. FaieqaDean Says:

    The road at UiTM Puncak Perdana there is quite haunted. Nobody dares to travel there after midnight. A lot of accidents happen there that was discover the next morning which means the accident happen at night. Recently, a motorcyclist died. His body was in the lake beside the road and his motorcycle was still on the road. Others claims that when u drive along the road there will be someone else accompanying u.

    I stayed ina house on federal hill (bukit persekutuan) and every nite no matter how i locked the doors and the windows, id wake up in the morning and find everything open. Every single day. Kitchen drawers would be on the floor and my dogs would never enter certain rooms even if i put food there. I stayed there for a year plus and was able to cope with this small difficulties. One night i woke up in the early hours of the morning to go to the toilet and upon returning saw something sleeping in my bed under the sheets. Thats was it! I moved out at the end of the month and lost my deposit and bond.
